Keith Landry's Favorite tracks on alonetone

Here’s proof. Proof that things are a bit mysterious in my studio.

Late last night my Bass Cajon all of a sudden decided to start accompanying me on its own - without me touching it. At first I thought that some apparitional bass player had joined me and turned around half expecting to see Vaisvil or Launched. But there was nobody to be seen. So I stuck a powered bass mic next to the Cajon and returned to my congas to see how he would do. He kept up pretty well and anticipated the improvised pattern perfectly.

Oh sure, you can try to explain to me that the sine wave of my bass conga was just right to cause the snare springs inside of the Bass Cajon to vibrate. Right. Easy for you to say. But you weren’t there, were you? It felt bigger than that. And while it didn’t show up on the tape for some reason, I thought I heard a voice say “Ohh yeah. That’s right. Beat me Daddy Eight to the bar!“ When I turned around my beer was half gone!

I like your sixth sense and the way that you communicate. Very creative!

Tight Groove! Hate it when your instruments decide to steal your beer...but's a small price to pay for having them play along for free on a track, right? btw...can't believe you used to listen to KY102 back in the day! Where you from originally?

Thanks Norm I was not that sure of the glock but you are the King of percussion so thanks for that.

@Geas: Uh, that would have freaked me out too. And how about when you have your headphones up loud, really focusing on the project, and you look up and somebody has (quietly, so as not to disturb you) walked into the studio to ask you a question or something? I've had to edit out a explicit derogatory once in awhile - but the adrenaline rush is awesome!

My synth counted down 4-3-2-1 for me once. During a late RPM night. Scared the Sh*t right out of me.

Hey Norm, Thanks for the okay on playing along. I'll try to find the time to work on it this week. Thankfully, summer vacation is on the way and I can really spend more time recording... And thanks for coming by and listening to some of my stuff. If you really want to get the flavor of this February's complete CD, check out the playlist "Late December" if you'd like to hear this year's RPM album in order rather than back to front. Keith

Well I believe you had a visit from the ghost of funky percussion. This is really really cool man. I love the little rolls in there, and it has a killer driving beat.
